En Plein Air is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Working in natural light to complete a painting on location has inspired many artists.
Paintings will be displayed Friday evening August 23, from 6-9pm and Saturday August 24, 10am - 2:30 pm. Paintings will be open for viewing and silent auction bidding during these hours. This will be the 2nd annual Plein Air Art Competition held in Meeker. Cash Awards, $1000 Best of Show
